  • 250 ml chicken or vegetable stock
  • 1 medium onion
  • 125 g dried apricots
  • 125 g baby sweetcorn
  • 1 yellow pepper
  • 400 g new potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons flour (30ml)
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala (5ml)
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon (2.5ml)
  • ½ teaspoon salt (2.5ml)
  • 600 g skinless, boneless chicken joints


  • Heat the stock - or make up a stock cube with boiling water
  • Chop the onion into small pieces
  • Optionally cut the apricots and sweetcorn in half
  • Chop the pepper into pieces - about 1cm x 2cm
  • Mix the apricots and vegetables, except for the sweetcorn, together
  • Chop the potatoes into 1 cm cubes
  • Put half the vegetables in the cooker, then the sweetcorn, then the rest of the mixed veg
  • The sweetcorn will darken if it's left exposed - but it still tastes okay
  • Cut chicken joints into pieces of about 50g.
    Large thighs may need cutting in half. Cut breasts into 2-3 pieces
  • Mix the flour with the spices on a large plate or dish and coat the pieces of chicken and add to the cooker
  • Pour the stock over the chicken. Put the lid on and cook for 8-10 hours on LOW or 5-6 hours on HIGH
  • If you prefer a thicker sauce, mix a teaspoon of cornflour with a little cold water and stir it in


Everyday Cooks tip:

To prepare the night before:
  • All the vegetables except the potatoes can be prepared and left in a plastic box in the fridge overnight
  • The chicken can be prepared and put in a covered dish in the fridge overnight
  • In the morning, heat the stock and chop the potatoes, then assemble the casserole
